PIB SIGNS CONTRACT WITH NBCC FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THE NATIONAL PRESS CENTRE



The Press Information Bureau (PIB) has signed a contract today with National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) Ltd., for the construction of a new National Press Centre in New Delhi. Ms. Ira Joshi, Additional Director General (Admn.), PIB and Shri Arup Roy Choudhary, Chairman-cum-Managing Director, NBCC inked the contract to this effect in presence of Smt. Neelam Kapur, Pr. Director General, PIB.

The new National Press Centre (NPC) will be a world class Press Centre with state of the art press conference hall, media briefing rooms, a large work area and lounge for the press, editing and other professional facilities, library etc. The existing Media Centre at first floor of Shastri Bhawan is increasingly becoming inadequate to accommodate the growing number of press correspondents accredited to the Government of India as well as to provide them other professional facility like work room for journalists, lounge, interviewing facilities for electronic media etc., at par with media centres in other countries.

The work of construction has been awarded to NBCC Ltd. on ready to occupy basis at a cost of Rs. 60/- crore. The construction work is likely to commence at 7-E, Raisina Road, New Delhi in the first week of April, 2010 and would span over a period of 30 months.
